Ok, I'll admit it, I think I like hardware as much, if not more than the games that run on it. For those looking to go a bit beyond the standard air-cooling in their rig, SwiftTech may have a new solution for you with their new MXC462+T unit. They've basically coupled one of their outstanding (and not to mention heav!y) heatsinks with a 226Watt Peltier element. Some of this beasts features include:
  • Cooling capacity: up to 100 Watts to ambient with 80CFM fan.
  • Hybrid copper base, thin aluminum pin heatsink: thanks to it's massive 1/2" thick copper base, the MCX462+ is the first commercial air-cooled heatsink on the market capable of absorbing, and dissipating the combined thermal load produced by a thermoelectric module of this class, and the latest generations of micro-processor.
  • Patented Helicoid pin design: pins are individually machined in an helicoid shape, to increase their surface area, and further enhance heat dissipation efficiency.
    Exceptional quality and attention to details: the heatsink base is lapped to 0.0003" (3/10 of 1/1000"), and polished to near-mirror finish to promote optimum thermal conductivity.
  • The 1/2" thick cold plate is also fully insulated to eliminate condensation.
  • This is definately for those wanting to push their CPU to it's overclocking limits, assuming you have the hardware (i.e. memory, etc.) to handle it.
